Virtual Server Facility (VSF)

Virtual server facility (VSF) allows a user to divide a computer system into multiple systems. This process, also called partitioning, occurs within the cabinet of the computer system. VSF is a feature of second-generation advanced CMOS-ECL (ACE) technology.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Virtual Server Facility (VSF)

SMBs might use VSF to divide a computer system into smaller parts because they want to improve productivity in their organization without spending money on a brand new system. These companies tend to have smaller IT budgets than larger organizations and sometimes partitioning can be as effective as investing in new technologies. Someone might use a VSF to physically partition a computer system to free up system space or improve performance.
